Well we have officially moved out of our house, but we're still in Sydney. Our flight dates have changed more than a few times and as of this morning we still are no clearer on when we are leaving.
Last week we were told we were going yesterday, now it's looking like next week.
At least we're ready. Packed, kids have finished school, all we need is the go ahead.
It messes with your head a little, I must say. You don't want to say premature goodbyes, but there's the knowledge in your head that you might get an email saying you're going tomorrow. It's a weird time, that's for sure. I'm sure everyone will be sick of us by the time we leave. "Will they just go already?!"
To make up for it, Sydney is putting on a show this week with fabulous weather. So the kids are playing and playing outside. We've been to the zoo. We've eaten out. We've been to the beach. Most of all, I'm just enjoying taking some time to breathe after a very hectic few weeks.
Thankfully, I have awesome in-laws who are happy to put us up and are very relaxed. It's comfortable and makes it very easy to stay. My mother-in-law has even got up to the baby some nights, winning!
I'm just soaking in Sydney at the moment. Every gargle of a magpie, every whiff of wattle, watching the kids chase the bush turkey in the backyard. It's all being put away in the memory bank.
